Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

its a nice lens for sure. i'm shooting with a nikkor 35-105 1:35-45, but would love a wide angle lens, or maybe even a fish eye.

I am afraid I'd get sick of a fish-eye. The cost was never worth it to me. Get a wide-angle. You'll love it.
